Ayuverda was developed in India, and continues to be a stronghold in Eastern medicine. “Ayurveda is a science of lie” – Deepak Chopra.
Ayur = life
Veda = science or knowledge
Ayurveda is guided by two main principles
- The mind and body are inextricably connected, and
- nothing has more power to heal and transform the body than the mind
Ayurveda combines the healing nature of herbs and food with meditation and other remedies such as sleep, being one with nature and exercise.
The Ayurvedic approach is about aligning with the infinite organizing power of nature rather than struggling or trying to force things to go your way.
